We looked at the work of Red Grooms & watched a video on Dali Salad. Students created a self portrait (using mirrors), and were allowed to draw any food item they wanted behind/around them. We used watercolor to paint their portraits. I allowed them to mix their own skin tones in a small container. This proved extremely challenging, and I'm going to switch the lesson from watercolor to tempera.
I know I'm not supposed to make fun of your spelling, but could you please give me directions to skin town? I'm sorry! I just couldn't resist......Love Red Grooms and you kiddos did a great job!
